Have visited this pub a few times now and the staff are lovely and so is the food but they have the worst bouncers in the city. They are rude , arrogant and refuse to listen to you . If you are in the age group of 18-20 you will either not get let in or told to leave after... More

This pub was giant! They had this beautiful glass dome in their main area and on the walls there was all sorts of signed photos of people who had performed there. We wished would could have stayed for music as it looks like a great venue

Was here recently and watched the live band who were brilliant. The place was blocked with people and a great atmosphere. The pints were cold, staff friendly. A great spot to be in Cork. We will definitely be back to the Old Oak.

Service isnt great here, bathrooms are a bit dingy and its a bit dark, its a pub from the 80's so they havent really done anything since then, much nicer pubs in Cork with more character.

Staff and bouncers very unfriendly and rude. Bar staff were unhelpful. Was too overcrowded. Other than that, a nice crowd in the pub itself. Good age group ie not too young.

Cold beer and the food was simple pub food but seemed to be in high demand. We enjoyed our beer celebrating a birthday on St Pats Day with friends. The atmosphere was great.
